Employer Responses to Overturning of Roe v. Wade


Many employers are considering how to respond to the recent ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, which has given states the leeway to outlaw abortion. Employers may have employees who are on either side – or both sides – of the politics of the issue. Employer plans may already exclude abortion services or may cover abortion services. In the latter case, employers may wish to add travel benefits to enable employees who live in states that outlaw the services to travel to obtain an abortion.
